    its sad that the nba was so poorly watched hen so the best hoopsters went unnoticed. Kind of a sad historical note. Or something. Anyway, dare I say that this thread is now about old school basketball reminiscing?

    First, I want to thank you for your kind posts about me and my wit recently. Unfortunately, they have given me a bit of performance anxiety, so I am unable to respond in the fashion to which you are all accustomed. I am, as it were, e-flaccid up in here.

    so this is probably too ghetto/lowbrow for this thread, but my gf and i made homemade samoas last night. shortbread cookie, homemade caramel (this is a bitch to make without a thermometer), chocolate and coconut shavings. they came out ok - the chocolate/coconut ratio is off, and probably should've gotten a sweeter chocolate.

    Sounds pretty good to me, and I'm sure you'll improve the recipe. Dessert should be fun, you know.

    My wife actually has a very deft hand with pastry. I'll see what I can get her to make. If anyone is looking for a good pastry cookbook, she's been working her way through "Flour", which apparently has terrific instructions, but the baking times are way, way, off.

    So, tomorrow is my mother's birthday. I'd like to make something special. She is a fan of chocolate. Any nice recipes would be appreciated.

    Just do a molten chocolate cake. Yes, it's hackneyed, but done well - hard to beat. Serve with unsweetened whipped cream with lemon zest. You will even get some of your favorite colors. And plating is nearly impossible to screw up. I actually like a chocolate mousse in a ramekin as well.
